National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates

Thank you to our attendees, sponsors and speakers for another great event!

Stay tuned for details of the 7th Annual National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates.


The “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” a signature program of the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC), brings together transportation investment champions from around the country to share best practices, playbook secrets and other keys to success in advancing state and local legislative and ballot initiatives that boost transportation infrastructure investment.

Attend the Workshop to hear the real-life challenges and success stories of state transportation funding campaigns. Learn what states have raised or are trying to raise new transportation revenue, why they are doing so, what revenue streams they are exploring, who the major players are, and campaign tactics and strategies.

Be part of the conversation! Attendees will leave the Workshop with new skills and strategies for increasing funding in their own states. The Workshop is held in conjunction with ARTBA’s 30th annual “Public-Private Partnerships in Transportation Conference.”

The annual in-person meeting of the Transportation Investment Advocates Council will be held the afternoon of Tuesday, July 17. This meeting is for members of the Council, or for those interested in joining the Council.

Contact TIAC Director Carolyn Kramer with questions about the Workshop, Council meeting, or inquiries about sponsorship opportunities.

Feedback for the National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates:

“There is so much at stake with these funding issues. Politics is the process of making good policy, but the process is relational. This workshop provides an opportunity to build relationships and get better access to data and information.”
– Seth Millican, director of the Georgia Transportation Alliance.

“It was invaluable hearing from other states that had been successful in getting funding. It was also helpful hearing from those states that hadn’t been successful.”
– Maria Fuentes, executive director of the Maine Better Transportation Association

“There is no other event like this in the country that provides an opportunity for advocates to gather and discuss issues. The National Workshop provides forums to share information on the issues we face and the solutions we develop.”
Juva Barber, executive director of Kentuckians for Better Transportation
